Question: Can graphic warning labels on cigarette packs affect cognitions and smoking behavior among US daily smokers who are not ready to quit smoking?

Findings: This randomized clinical trial found that graphic warning labels decreased positive perceptions of cigarettes associated with branded cigarette packs but without clearly increasing health concerns. They also increased quitting cognitions but did not affect either cigarette cessation or consumption levels.

Meaning: Placing graphic warning labels on US cigarette packs did not have an effect on smoking behavior; however, these findings suggest that they may enhance other tobacco control strategies to reduce cigarette smoking.

Означает ли это, что доброхоты теперь отвяжутся от сигаретных пачек? Бгг, конечно нет. Тем более, против масок и ремней безопасности ведь никто не возражает -- так почему же здесь что-то менять.
